Apple is allowing Parler, a free-speech social media platform, to return to the app store following changes made to how the social media network moderates content. Parler was removed from the app store in January after the Capitol insurrection.

Apple wrote a letter to Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) on Monday explaining that the review team had approved of Parler’s updates and that the app is available to be downloaded again on Apple devices.

“Apple anticipates that the updated Parler app will become available immediately upon Parler releasing it,” the letter said.

On March 31, Sen. Lee and Rep. Buck wrote a letter demanding answers as to why Parler was still banned from Apple’s app store.

“Today, we received a response: Parler will be reinstated on the App Store. Huge win for free speech,” Buck said.

The letter notes that Apple’s decision to remove Parler from its app store was “an independent decision” and that Apple “did not coordinate or otherwise consult with Google or Amazon with respect to that decision.”

Parler was also removed from Google’s app stores and Amazon Web Services following the Jan. 6 insurrection.

There has been no indication that Google Play Stores will allow Parler to come back. Moreover, Parler is currently in a legal battle with Amazon, arguing that the Big Tech companies colluded to restrict Parler’s access to the market.

Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.

The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
